Posted by MoneyKey on April 29, 2015
Saving money doesn’t have to be difficult. Finding little ways, here and there, to save can quickly turn into significant monthly savings. While your smartphone is an expense, it can also be used as a source for savings. You can save time and money by downloading these five apps.

Save Money at the Pump with GasBuddy

This easy to use app tells you where around you the cheapest gas prices are. For extra value, earn points by engaging with their app. Once you earn 1,000 points you can enter into various draws to win pre-paid gas cards.
